Impressions from the SPS 2019

It was a pleasure for us to welcome you at out our booth this year at SPS 2019.

If you didn't have time to see us at the fair, see below for our product news and highlights or contact us to learn more about our solutions for seamless ditigal date exchange and network commissioning and diagnostics

We are looking forward to seeing you again at SPS 2020, Nov 24th-26th. Save the date!

Seamless Digital Data Exchange and Networked Solutions for the Process Industry

Modern process manufacturers face the challenge of integrating different communication interfaces with disparate protocols in their plants when they want to move further on their way to digitalization.

At SPS 2019 we will show you how our gateways ensure end-to-end digital data exchange and how our mobile enterprise solutions make data easily accessible for commissioning and maintenance.

Multi-Protocol Process Control

Greater efficiency and flexibility in production are in the focus of the process industry. Softing's smartGate product family makes use of existing assets and opens the way for future IIoT use cases. The Gateways support all Ethernet protocols relevant to the process industry:

  • With pnGate PA / pnGate PB / pnGate DP it is possible to integrate PROFIBUS DP segments into PROFINET control sytems.
  • mbGate PA / mbGate PB / mbGate DP enable direct integration of PROFIBUS PA and DP segments into Modbus/TCP systems.
    NEW: The "High Availibility" option allows the operation of a redundant system with two Modbus/TCP controllers and two Modbus/TCP gateways. In this way, system availability is ensured even in the event of a connection failure.
  • NEW: epGate DP / epGate PA / epGate PB conveniently connect PROFIBUS devices to Ethernet/IP controllers (e.g. from Rockwell, Schneider Electric or Emerson).

Mobile Enterprise Solutions

Modern process plants require digital, mobile, networked and standardized solutions that make data from plants, machines and field devices easily accessible and streamline maintenance procedures.

Our mobiLink interface provides access to the three most important communication protocols in process automation – HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA – via a single interface. Via Bluetooth and battery, mobiLink  can be used with mobile devices (tablets and smartphones) for commissioning, parameterization and maintenance of field devices.

NEW: An FDI Communication Server now makes it possible to use mobiLink with FDI applications.

NEW: mobiLink Power –available at the beginning of 2020 – will allow field devices to be supplied with power, which is obtained via the USB port. An external power supply for the field devices is no longer necessary.
